Can someone explain to me why we gave him a guaranteed 1.25 million dollar contract? Do we know of any other team that was going to guarantee him money? Everything I had read was for a minor league deal, (which I was in favor for). But I do have confidence in Dr. Altchek's ability to repair a shoulder, and for that I won't kill this deal. It's not a major deal, 1.25 million isn't going to kill us, but still, no need to guarantee it.
Escobar is going to work out of the bullpen and could be a nice addition.
I will write up a longer post tomorrow in response to Ben Sheets wanting 12 million and other hot stove topics.
Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.
